It is an interdisciplinary coalition of independent and university-affiliated research institutions and addresses the question of how the internet with its numerous Web 2.0 applications changes research and publishing processes in science.
The research alliance connects the world of science with the world of science infrastructures. It aims to develop new technologies for infrastructure institutions based on detailed research findings about the changing working habits of scientists. The first findings have been presented already in the course of the meeting.
